[SOLVED] Module seems to lose Db connection midway through operation


Recommended Posts

Running Presta


The problem is under the configure section of a module. When you enter a response to the customers question it does not save to the database. This error is generated:


PHP Warning:  mysql_real_escape_string(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) in mysite/modules/ask_question/ask_question.php on line 484, referer: http://www.mysite/backoffice/index.php?controller=AdminModules&token=db440915b2b491fc6b85e71a37154e8e&configure=ask_question&tab_module=front_office_features&module_name=ask_question&view_question=1
Troubleshooting advice on this error suggests that the database connection mysql_connect() has not been made. But the rest of the page/site runs fine. So it is being used everywhere else, and then dies when being called within a simple little function? 
I have tried this before the query that fails:
Also this problem is only on my production server, my development environment is fine.
Thanks for any help!!
